WHEREAS, the parties hereto are Affiliates (as defined below), each being a wholly owned subsidiary of Compound Banc Real Estate Holdings, Inc., a Florida corporation;


NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the foregoing, the terms and conditions hereinafter set forth, and other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the Parties hereto hereby agree as follows:




(a) Services. Pursuant to the terms of and conditions of this Agreement, during the Term, the Company hereby engages Compound Administrative to provide to the Company staff and office facilities, including all equipment and supplies, that are reasonable, necessary or useful for the day-to-day operations of the business of the Company, subject to such direction provided by the Company to Compound Administrative (collectively, the “Services”) and Compound Administrative hereby accepts such engagement and agrees to perform such Services consistent with the terms and conditions of this Agreement.


(b) Administrative Fee. As compensation for the Services, the Company agrees to pay Compound Administrative a monthly administrative service fee (the “Administrative Services Fee”) equal to the costs of Compound Administrative incurred by Compound Administrative in providing the staff and office expenses as included in the Services. On the first business day of each month during the Term following the initial month of the Term, Compound Administrative shall invoice the Company for amount of Administrative Services Fee (the “Monthly Invoice”) for the preceding month in accordance with the Services provided in the preceding month. The Monthly Invoice shall provide a detailed breakdown of the components of the Monthly Services Fee. Compound Administrative shall provide the Company with such additional documentation as it reasonably requests to support such additional documentation.





(c) Billing Dispute Resolution. If the Company disputes any expense or expenses included on the Monthly Invoice, including on the grounds that the same was not a reasonable or appropriate cost incurred by Compound Administrative in connection with the Services, Compound Administrative shall be promptly notified of the exceptions taken. Compound Administrative and the Company shall use their commercially reasonable efforts to resolve the payment dispute within sixty (60) days after notice of such dispute. If the payment dispute is not resolved within such 60-day period, the Company and Compound Administrative shall promptly submit such dispute to binding arbitration pursuant to the rules and procedures of the American Arbitration Association and use their respective commercially reasonable efforts to cause a neutral arbitrator to resolve the dispute on an expedited basis, and in any event as soon as practicable. The provisions of this SECTION 1(c) shall survive the expiration or earlier termination of this Agreement.


(d) Allocation of Resources. During the term of this Agreement, Compound Administrative shall provide the Services pursuant to this Agreement and allocate a sufficient amount of their time, focus, resources and effort as Compound Administrative may determine is reasonably necessary to perform such Services under the then-current scope of Services, and with that degree of care, diligence and skill that a reasonably prudent manager involved in providing services comparable to those of the Services.


SECTION 2. EMPLOYEES OF COMPOUND ADMINISTRATIVE. Compound Administrative shall select, employ, pay compensation to, supervise and direct all personnel and employees of Compound Administrative necessary for the performance of the Services. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company may at any time, in its sole discretion with or without cause, direct that Compound Administrative remove any particular employee or agent of Compound Administrative from provision of the Services, and, following any such removal and the payment of all amounts properly owed to such employee or agent as of the date of such removal, the salary and other costs related to such employee or agent shall be excluded from the Administrative Services Fee.


SECTION 3. SERVICE PROVIDER INFORMATION. It is contemplated by the parties hereto that, during the Term of this Agreement, the parties will be required to provide each other certain notices, information and data necessary for Compound Administrative to perform the Services and for the parties to perform their respective obligations under this Agreement.

SECTION 4. NO COMMINGLING OF ASSETS.
